Researching Music Censorship
The attention to negotiations on culture, power, and human rights is generally strong in the Nordic countries. Historical and contemporary music censorship is the focus of this network, which aims to add to the understanding of music in everyday life, in the discourses between public and private spaces, and in war and conflicts.
Through an interdisciplinary collaboration, the network will promote and encourage the scholarly study of music censorship and research the role of music in relation to human rights and artistic freedom of expression.
In this way, the network will contribute to the definition of the field and promote new theoretical and methodological perspectives for the understanding of the interplay of music and power.
